And that is what I'm talking about.. Android was made easy enough for people to use on there phones.. Also, I said Android/Google OS. Google sales a notebook with just a Google OS called the Chromebook. It's affordable and has everything most users need in a windows base pc. We can't be so closed minded. There was a time when DX was very bad and OpenGL had the best graphics and all games had it. I can see OpenGL coming back strong to gaming because of companys like Valve pushing the SteamBox. I'm not saying DX is bad, because it has come along way since early DX, but I would like to have the option again to run my games in GL or DX.
Have you used the lastest Ubuntu? It's very user friendly and if Microsoft thinks people can jump on Windows 8 with out any problem why can you believe people can learn to us Linux? I think people sale themselves short.
